Fear of animal foods : a century of zoonotics.

Atkins, Peter (2008) 'Fear of animal foods : a century of zoonotics.', Appetite., 51 (1). pp. 18-21.


Animal diseases can be spread to humans through the food supply. The article investigates this zoonotic hazard in an historical context and reflects on the nature of public reactions to such risk. It concludes that food scares have been with us for at least 150 years and that consumer responses in terms of changes in demand have been complex.
